I don’t know where to start!

I have made yet another resolution to keep my website up to date, as it is so long since I wrote a blog, I don’t know where, or even when to start. This year has been phenominally busy, so I’ll just make a list:-

March 2015 – My usual visit to Dorchester for the orchestral version of Dave the Musical Caveman,Dorset Chamber orchestra with narrator Martin Clunes.   This year I re wrote it to include young recorder players from Cerne Abbbas school.

‘Rainbow Island’ with adult orchestra of my ECMC, ESO, & other orchestral friends and all the children of Berrymede Junior School. There are loads of great pictures, which I’lll attempt to put in my gallery.

April The memorial concert at Ealing Chamber Music Club for Anthea Sharma, founder member, who died in September last year. At the end on an evening of chamber music, we formed an orchestra & performed my ‘Elegy’, which I wrote for the occasion.

May & June was spent writing and/or arranging music for large brass ensembles for English Brass Academy(under the direction of Paul Archibald) courses in Kuwait & Croatia. Also preparing the vast Berrymede recorder orchestra & guitar club, & kids in general for our Berrymede Talent Festival to be held in early July. I finished the arrangement for the Ealing Chamber Music Club’s Summer Sing/Play along Abba medley. & performed my ‘Seeking Zamfir’ & ‘Two Turkish Dances’ with a string trio at an Ealing Chamber Music Club concert.

July  Berrymede talent Fest –  A whole week of performance events involving all 400 children.

London Composers’ Forum concert in Central London, in which John Holland, Owen Phillips & I performed my ‘Reeds & Rhythm’ for soprano, & baritone saxes & drums.(See photo).

The big end of year Ealing Chamber Music Club extravaganza ending with everyone singiing & playing my arrangement of Abba songs. It was so enjoyable,(see ECMC website)

A week in Sibernik, Croatia, with English Brass Academy. They played 8 of my compositions/arrrangements in 3 concerts in spectacular venues. There are many pictures & recordings & a brilliant slideshow on facebook.(See picture of rehearsal)Croatia rehearsal19423039870_5187c6cf80_n
